Introduce yourself to others at Dhamma Wheel.
I'm Jayarava from the Western Buddhist Order. I have a long term interest in the Pāli canon and know a little Pāli. I write a blog which frequently features a verse or two from a sutta upon which I comment. So not a Theravādin but with sympathy for that path, and a love of the scriptures.

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
The Pali Canon is great! I don't know where I'd be without it.

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)'We should not congratulate someone on the success of their misdeeds, but on the contrary should endeavour to advise him or her to lead a more skilful and wholesome life. If such advice is ignored then we can only give up and let go' - Phra PanyapatipoDharma Wheel (Mahayana / Vajrayana forum)
